Oh Wow: The 2017 European Yo-Yo Champion's Winning Routine

March 16, 2017


Note: Just watch the video, no screepcap is going to do justice to whatever the hell I just watched.

This is a very impressive video of Evan Nagao's yo-yo routine that just won the 2017 European Yo-Yo Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia. It kind of blew my mind. It also doesn't hurt that he performed to Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Free Bird'. Because if I'm a judge at a yo-yo competition and somebody performs to 'Free Bird', I'm automatically handing them first place and I don't care if all they do is walk the dog and fail to get the yo-yo to return. Evan is better than that though, he does things with a yo-yo that I never thought were possible. Now I'm not saying he's a wizard, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find out he resides in a cave atop an enchanted mountain. "So you're saying he's a sorcerer." There's no question.

Keep going for the video with tons of ooh-ing and aah-ing from the audience, who clearly know their yo-yo tricks.

Thanks to rory, who can't even imagine how insane the hotel parties after a yo-yo competition must be.

    Kinda reminds me of the time I played with my mucus with a piece of booger at the end.

  • Meh

    Didn't see a single walk the dog, not impressed.

  • Madara

    Disliked it just because of the country music lmao.

  • Joseph W.

    Freebird is NOT country music by any definition. It is the quintessential 70's rock ballad.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Of course modern country (and not the pop-country so much) takes cues from 70s rock.

    Also relevant, I've never met a drunken racist redneck who didn't like Skynyrd (which makes no sense what with that one song about Curtis Lowe and how awesome he was).

  • Darren McCoy

    Yo yo groupies will be all over that!

  • OliverF

    Take note kids (and snowflakes). You too can excel at something if you truly dedicate your time and passion into it.

  • DrTravelbug

    chants: U...S...A........U..S..A....

  • Munihausen

    Give that patriot the $10,000.

  • Bling Nye

    ...I'm now convinced yo-yo's can get you laid.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Probably not. But if you know how to dance and yoyo at the same time that should work in your favor.

  • kodama

    Um. Just. Wow. I can't even.
